I've grown Sun Gold Tomatoes for the past 6 years here in southern NH, and I
can't say enough good things about them.
For those who don't know this variety, it's a cherry tomato with a bright
orange color and the most intense tomato taste ever. And best of all, it
grown like a weed. They are very vigorous and each cluster (for lack of a
better word) has about a dozen tomatoes on them. It peak season right now
and each day I go out I pick nearly 30-40 of them (and that's just from 2
plants). Of course all the rain and hot weather we've had has helped. I've
also planted then in containers and they seem to do almost as well except
the fruits are a bit smaller.
Just wanted to pass on my experience, and to plant a seed (no pun intended).
Because if your like me and already thinking about next years garden...

Yes, I have grown Sungold here in the UK for several years. Whilst
other varieties have come and gone, Sungold is always reliable and
In recent years, I have often lost tomatoes due to Blight. However,
even though many of my other tomatoes have been affected by blight
this year, the Sungolds have carried on producing.
Give 'em a go.

Tomato plants should be planted out in the garden after all
danger of frost is past for your area.
Here in the Ohio Valley, I start my tomatoes inside sometime
abound March 1st and plant them in the garden in May
(usually about May 15th depending on the weather).
If you are going to start them inside use a "seed starter"
mix and start them in small containers (the four or six
packs that annuals come in are good). After the seeds get
started I use a weak (one quarter strength) fertilizer.
When the plants get larger and have a good root system I
transplant them from the the six packs into individual
containers (I use plastic yogurt containers).
